I have admired the work of CHILD for almost twenty years. No other organization is solely committed to helping children subject to religious-based medical neglect. And CHILD has been remarkably effective in reaching policymakers and achieving change. In 2010 alone, CHILD representatives testified before the Wisconsin legislature, lobbied the United States Congress, and urged prosecutors in New Mexico, Pennsylvania, Oregon, and Washington to prosecute fully parents who permitted their children to die of treatable illnesses. This past spring, CHILD focused its efforts on achieving legislative change in Oregon, and it succeeded: on June 9 Oregon Governor John Kitzhaber signed into law an emergency bill removing Oregon’s religious exemptions pertaining to medical care of sick and injured children. CHILD is the model of a small nonprofit achieving real change.

CHILD, Inc. an organization founded to promote equal rights for children to have access to appropriate medical care, has been responsible for bringing to light hundreds of cases throughout the world where children have been physically and psychologically neglected/abused, or have died when their parents have chosen treatment through their religious beliefs or cultural practices and have denied medical evaluation and treatment. In addition, their founders have worked tirelessly with state legislatures in the United States to remove any exemption clause(s) in the statutes that prevent prosecution of parents when such situations occur.
